Key and Password Security

As the price of Ethereum increases so does the need to keep the passwords and keys relating to your nodes safe


For individual key custody solutions for staking Ethereum we recommend 1password.

Securing your nodes means keeping your

  • key file
  • wallet password
  • seed phrases

Safe, most important of these is the seed phrase that relates to your node. This Metamask article explains why. Our recommendations for people running under 100 nodes are for highly secure, competent and established password managers that provide individual and enterprise solutions for storing passwords, secrets and keys, that have been tested over time with a broad range of use cases. We also think these vendors have user interfaces and workflows that are easy to use and manage over time and multiple devices.

  • Registration by the Financial Conduct Authority as a crypto asset firm.
  • Provides two solutions for storing digital assets.
  • Institutional Grade offline solution

  • Defence grade hardware.
